Buttercup has very correct phenotype that includes spear-shaped ears, depth of jaw, low tail set and correct leg structure. Her LF roan fleece has excellent density, fineness, high crimp definition, brightness, uniformity, staple length and a very silky - soft handle. With her vicuna shading and with her fleece genetics she will reliably produced dark colors with these desirable characteristics. She is average sized and her fleece coverage extends to her toes.
Her sire is our champion Constantino who won blues and purples for fives years from top judges and in steep competition. He is stamping his image on his crias consistently! In addition, his bloodline is known for its off the charts lactation and IgG's.
